Hello, hello friends!!! This is officially my first Christmas post on the blog this year! I AM SO EXCITED!! I think that this season is a favorite for a lot of people and I am no exception! I will be the first to admit that I have already started my holiday baking (with these Candy Cane Brownies) #forthewin! Today I have the cutest, easiest little Reindeer Embroidery Hoop Ornament tutorial for you…
I love the rustic simplicity of this ornament. It’s perfect for hanging from the tree or embellishing a gift with. What I also love is that you don’t need any special tools or obscure materials.
- 3″ embroidery hoop
- 4×4″ piece of cream fabric
- red button
- red thread
- small needle
- brown yarn
- yarn needle
- bakers twine
Place fabric into the embroidery hoop and tighten the hoop to hold the fabric in place. Using the red thread and small needle, sew the red button to the material close to the bottom of the hoop. Draw antlers onto fabric using a pencil (of fabric pen). Using the brown yarn and yarn needle, embroider a pair of antlers onto the fabric above the nose. Remove the fabric from the hoop and straighten the image (if needed) in the hoop. Tighten the hoop and trim off excess fabric. Fasten a piece of bakers twine to the top of the hoop for hanging.
This little ornament is really easy to create and would be fun attached to a greeting card too. Wrapped up with a bit of bakers twine and craft paper?! Awesome! What would you do with it?!
